Honeymoon Island

Honeymoon Island (Barkuda Island)

It is situated in the Rambha Bay near Sankuda Island and is 5 kilometers away from Rambha Jetty. This land is also called as Barkuda Island. Britishers used this land for picnic purposes. It is surrounded by clear waters with natural habitats all around. The view of the water from here is breathtaking and one can also find a luxuriant bed of seagrass. Dr. Anandale & Kemp recorded the limbless lizard an endemic species from this island during 1917, which was named as Barkudia insularis. The lizard looks like a large earthworm and lives in the subsoil and probably feeds on small arthropods.
